The Herald has announced its choice for Governor in the Democratic primary: Tom Reilly. MavDem has the details. My question is this: why is the Herald ed. board, who surely will ultimately back Kerry Healey, endorsing in the Democratic primary?
Good news for Deval Patrick, IMHO. He certainly wasn’t going to get the Herald’s endorsement, and the fact that Reilly rather than Gabrieli got it makes it that much more likely that Reilly can take back some of those moderate/independent types that might have been moving toward Gabs in recent days.
Anyway, the Herald also endorsed Deb Goldberg for Lt. Gov., citing Goldberg’s public and private sector experience, and “her judgment and maturity that make her an outstanding choice.”
Congrats to both campaigns.
